Have you been regretting the fact that you never were able to have your smile straightened when you were a child? The good news is that there is no reason to continue feeling this way. At our practice, Premier Family Dental Care, our Invisalign orthodontist in Clifton is able to provide you with an Invisalign consultation to see if this teeth straightening system will work well for you.
Our orthodontist in Clifton is Dr. Shahmehdi. At our dental practice we offer a wide range of dental care services including general and cosmetic dentistry care, and orthodontic treatment with Invisalign invisible braces. Patients enjoy using Invisalign because it is a way for them to receive discreet orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is actually a series of clear plastic aligners that are made to straighten teeth. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, in sequence, so that your teeth can be slowly moved into their perfect position. Each patient will have a series of clear aligners made specifically for them, usually numbering anywhere from 20 to 35 aligners. Treatment with Invisalign tooth straightening system takes about the same amount of time as treatment takes with traditional metal braces.
Our orthodontist in Clifton will be able to advise you on the many benefits that Invisalign has over other teeth straightening methods. To begin with, no one can tell that you are wearing Invisalign aligners because they are virtually invisible when on your teeth. The aligners are made of a clear plastic, and for this reason Invisalign is often referred to as “invisible braces.” Another great benefit is that the aligners are removed for eating. This means that you are able to eat anything you want during the entire treatment process. This is certainly not the case when a patient is wearing metal or ceramic traditional braces. The aligners are also removed daily so that your teeth can be thoroughly brushed and flossed. This means that at the end of treatment your teeth will be as beautiful and as healthy as they were the day you started treatment. Not all smile situations can be corrected using Invisalign. However, a consultation with our dentist will be able to determine whether or not you will be a good candidate for Invisalign. Some teens are also able to use Invisalign to correct their smiles, but again a full Invisalign consultation is needed. For an appointment to see our expert Invisalign dentist, contact us today.
